The Energy Mix is published by Energy Mix Productions Inc., a Canadian non-profit that promotes community awareness of, engagement in, and action on climate change, energy, and post-carbon solutions.

Each week, we scan up to 1,000 news headlines to find the groundbreaking, provocative, hopeful, or sobering stories that will help you make sense of a complex, fast-moving issue.

We summarize the best of that material in a free, thrice-weekly e-digest that you can request direct to your email Inbox.

Then we archive our stories on this indexed, searchable site, to help you follow all the major pieces of the climate and energy puzzle. Each story links back to the original source material, to make it easy to track down as much additional detail as you want. (Or to thank the original writers and researchers for their great work.)

The Energy Mix is produced by:

Mitchell Beer, Managing Editor
Gaye Taylor, Senior Writer
Alexandra Bly, Editorial and Marketing Assistant
Shawna McKinley, Outreach and Marketing Manager

Smarter Shift Inc. is proud to support The Energy Mix as a free service to the climate and energy community—and to anyone else who’s concerned about climate change, interested in solutions, and trying to sort out what to do about it.

We’ve worked as content producers, content and publication managers, and communication strategists since the mid-1980s.

We run a thriving content marketing and social media management practice.

We’ve worked with clients in an array of subject areas. Over the years, we’ve picked up knowledge and experience in:

  • Climate change
  • Energy
  • Transportation infrastructure and finance
  • Public health and health care
  • Indigenous issues
  • Wholesale distribution
  • Information technology
  • Association management

…among many other fields.

Our mission is in climate, energy, and low-carbon futures. Our founder and president, Mitchell Beer, started his career in 1977 as a reporter, Parliamentary correspondent, then assistant editor at an Ottawa-based trade journal, Canadian Renewable Energy News. He took on his first climate change assignment in 1997.
